Nietzsche and Emancipatory Politics: Queer Theory as Anti-Morality
Critical Sociology (2019)
  • C. Heike Schotten
Abstract
This article offers an emancipatory appropriation of Nietzsche’s work, making the case that the founding of the field of queer theory exemplifies and proffers a liberatory Nietzschean praxis of anti-morality. This argument requires reading Nietzsche’s work from the perspective of the oppressed and (re-)reading queer theory as part of the project of critical theory.
